Thought for the Day: “God created the oak tree, which grows tall, straight, and strong. He also created the palm, which bends and sways in the changing winds. We need to learn to adopt the traits of both so we can be strong yet flexible – so we can weather the storms of life yet not break when life’s winds blow too hard.” Have an awesome day today everyone! –Elmer Laydon
This reminded me of a song sung by Tanya Tucker; "Strong Enough to Bend."
There's a tree
Out in the back yard;
That never has been broken by the wind.
And the reason it's still standing;
It was strong enough to bend.
That is exactly what we need to do. Stand strong, able to bend with the storms and allow the Lord to be in control. HE'S not going to let us snap. Not when we put our trust in HIM.
Be strong in HIM. Let HIM make you strong enough to bend.
